Knack

Not a great deal of PS4 games sold in Japan

Knack comes free with every console and Sega's Ryu ga Gotuko Ishin sells 73,000.

Famitsu have released a top 5 list with the best selling PS4 games in Japan at launch.

Topping the list is Knack which comes bundled with every unit of PlayStation 4 in Japan, but elsewhere there was little that really moved the needle.

1. Knack - 322,083 (PS4 First Limited Pack bundles)
2. Ryu ga Gotoku Ishin - 73,086
3. Battlefield 4 - 26,878
4. Killzone Shadowfall - 25,978
5. Dynasty Warriors 8 Xtreme Legends - 13,576

Perhaps the Japanese were happy to play Knack during the first weekend, perhaps they downloaded some games, or perhaps it was the Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn beta that had them excited.

REVIEW. Written by Arttu Rajala

"Knack isn't a bad game, but it doesn't really inspire you either."
